Tri-State Greetings & Wisco Boys Facebook


Wisco Boys / Tri-State Greeting Cards is a locally-owned wholesale greeting cards distribution company. Started in 1996, we have grown from a one-person distributorship to a full service greeting card company. We currently work with retailers in four states and employ seven representatives.


We purchase products only from reputable manufacturers and our customers carry the most popular selection of the highest quality merchandise. We consistently add new designs and products to our selection to keep your display fresh, unique and interesting; and, we offer cutting edge alternative cards that will create a buzz and drive customers to your card counter.


Our experience with Greeting Card Association and our 25 years of experience in the greeting card industry ensures you will be displaying the best of the best both in greeting cards and in display fixture presentation. Your display will be professionally serviced so your customers will easily find what they want, when they want it and where it should be.


We are committed to increasing our customer’s profits through increased retail sales while controlling inventory costs. The level of selection and service we provide is rare and is what differentiates Wisco Boys / Tri-State Greeting Cards from others. We provide total turn-key service for a variety of card department sizes and are dedicated to providing the best, and most appropriate, products for your company; and, we guarantee the best service in the field.


Serviced Visits

Wisco Boys / Tri-State Greeting Cards can provide regular service calls to customers on our everyday card program. Our representatives will detail the rack, put away incoming order, and write a new order to bring the rack up to the appropriate level of inventory. Regular service calls reduce the need for you to allocate your resources to managing your greeting card department and will save you money.


No Seasonal Carry Over

Our representatives will provide seasonal cards, products and displays and will pick up seasonal credit during their next regular service call after the holiday. The major seasons we supply cards for are: Christmas, Valentines Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and Graduation.


Custom Design

With 45+ combined years of experience in the greeting card fixture design and manufacturing industry, Doug and Mark can provide concept, design, direction and architectural drawings to create a unique card department that reflects your store goals.



Telesales enables us to serve customers outside our regular service area, or customers that want to manage their own departments. Orders may be phoned faxed, or placed online with the same great features as our regular mail orders.
